1914 Ford Model T Speedster
The most fun you can ever have with a car is driving an open Speedster, specifically this 1914 Ford Model T Speedster. Dependable, reliable and quite powerful with its lightweight bodywork. I have owned many Speedsters over my life and this one has the earlier brass era appearance and classic design of early T’s.
This one is believed to be built many, many years ago and has always been garaged and maintained since built. I bought it a few years ago from long term family ownership to play with it and teach the kids how to drive one. In my ownership, I have installed a new radiator and cooling components and had the seat upholstered. It’s hand crank only, however it starts easily on 1 or 2 pulls every time. Runs on battery or magento. Lights are all Kerosene or acetylene. The carbide generator has a crack, so that will need to be repaired prior to using gas headlights. There is a simple conversion for LED lights should you choose.
I have no history on mechanics, however previous owner said his dad had it all rebuilt, however there are no records. Engine is 1914, wheels are 26-27 and unsure on what vintage rear axle is. Priced very reasonably for the amount of fun you’ll have!
